Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past year, you know just how popular this Zara blanket plaid scarf is! I finally got my hands on it & I’m so happy I was able to snatch one up! One thing you need to understand is just how LARGE this plaid scarf is… Let’s just say they don’t call it a blanket scarf for no reason.

 This blanket plaid scarf is perfect for chilly football games, bonfire nights, & September afternoons at the outlet mall 😉 It can easily be paired with neutrals like I did for this look or you can make it a little more edgy with a biker jacket & mixing prints!
Unfortunately, the Zara plaid scarf is sold out & unless you are willing to pay $100+ on Ebay for the exact version, you might want to check out some of these retailers with similar plaid scarf options here, here & here!

Let’s just acknowledge that I am no stranger to mixing together different prints & styles {see examples of this on my Instagram}. I like throwing in unexpected details like leopard flats or a chunky statement necklace over a simple tee .

If there is one style that 100% needs to be in your closet this fall, it is a good pair of leopard flats. Although leopard is a print, it can be utilized as a neutral! Leopard flats can be worn with just about any outfit. They are a great finishing piece that add a hint of style to escape an otherwise simple outfit! {I have linked lots of great, affordable options below!}
